Meeting 45 Summary


In November 2021, members of the California Collaborative on District Reform convened virtually for the fifth time since the COVID-19 pandemic prompted the disruption of in-person learning in districts across the state. Meeting participants convened to discuss the challenges that district leaders, school administrators, and teachers face in ensuring that students’ social, emotional, and mental health needs are being addressed alongside academic needs in truly transformative ways. Grounding their discussions in the experiences of Garden Grove students who joined the group to share their experiences during the pandemic, members and guests explored ways in which a commitment to Transformative Social and Emotional Learning, a multi-tiered system of supports framework, and the principles of community schools can help districts serve the full range of student needs in a coherent way.

Resources from the meeting, including a summary of the group's conversation, are now available on the Meeting 45 page.
